Wait!…Before You Buy Land Consider This First?

What To Look For When Buying Land

So you have decided you would like to build a new home for you and your family? or you can’t find an established home to suit your needs in the area you want to live in? but not sure what you need to do before going out looking for a suitable piece of land?

The first and most important thing is to establish the area you want to live in. Are you looking for inner city or the Brisbane Bayside? and this decision will need to be based on what type of things are important to you.

Below is a check list that you should go through to help find a location that will meet your requirements.

  1. How will I get to work and how long will it take?
  2. Proximity to schools for now and the future.
  3. Do I need access to public transport?
  4. Can I walk to shops and medical facilities?
  5. Do I want access to a beach?

All of these things can have an impact on your quality of life.
You may select an area that is cheaper to buy the land but your ongoing travel cost and time taken to access the things you want create problems. This may mean that down the track you are looking to move again and the cost to do that can be very high.

Once you have decided on the area that you want to live in you then need to decide –
How much land do I need?
What size house do I want/need?
Do I need room for a boat, caravan or trailer?

Many of the blocks of land on offer are 400m2 or sometimes less. Are you looking for a single level home or are you wanting to go to a two storey home?
Remember it cost more to build a two storey home than a single level home of the same size.
